After the NFL Draft wrapped up last weekend, multiple coaches and officials around the league offered up some high praise for Dabo Swinney’s program.
Begnals head coach Zac Taylor offered up this insight after the Bengals took Myles Murphy in the first round.
“Went to a place that when you sign up to go play at Clemson, you know you’re competing for championships and the standard’s going to be very high, and that’s our standard here as well,” Taylor said. “We want to compete for championships and we have a very high standard, and we want players that understand that and have been through it before, and we know that Myles has done that.”
Baltimore Ravens Director of Player Personnel Joe Hortiz said this after the Trenton Simpson selection in the third round.
“His character is off the charts,” Hortiz said. “There at Clemson, they rave about him. We get a lot of information from them about their players, and he comes from a great program and a great place. So put everything together, it feels like a good pick.”
After TE Davis Allen was taken by Los Angeles in the fifth round, Rams’ head coach Sean McVay said this.
“Allen was a guy that we had targeted. I got a text right away from Dabo Swinney, who I have tremendous respect for,” McVay said. “This guy’s a complete player.”
Clemson and Notre Dame have released depth charts ahead of this weekend’s matchup at Death Valley.
